Understanding At-Will Employment
Like most states, Pennsylvania is an at-will state. What this means is that an employer can fire an employee at any time, without warning, and for virtually any reason. However, this does not mean that they can discriminate against their employees. There are specific laws in place that are intended to protect the rights of employees in all career fields and positions.
Common Examples Of Wrongful Termination
Knowing that you cannot be discriminated against is the first step toward protecting your rights. The next step is to understand what the grounds for discrimination are and how they can affect termination laws. If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated, our lawyers may be able to help.
A few examples of wrongful termination include:
- Physical disability
- Mental disability
- Gender identity
- Political affiliation
- Sexual orientation
